Dr. Conrad Murray will be tried in the death of Michael Jackson. Judge Michael Pastor said sufficient evidence was presented at the preliminary hearing.
While completely expected, this marks a significant development, as the case against Murray on involuntary manslaughter charges proved compelling.
Deputy D.A. David Walgren told the judge in his closing argument that, "It was not Michael Jackson's time to go" and that Conrad Murray is responsible.
As expected, Dr. Murray will stand trial for MJ's demise.
"Michael Jackson is not here today because of the negligence and reckless acts of Dr. Murray," said Walgren of the defendant, who sat stone-faced.
Walgren said Murray cared more about hiding evidence than helping MJ.
Judge Pastor's ruling followed a six-day preliminary hearing in which more than 20 witnesses were called. Murray's medical license was also suspended.
